 Grin2:-) Well what a coincidence I drive past that school every day on my way back from feeding my 95 year old dad I come under the railway line on the one way from Longfellow Rd into Whychall lane and then onto the fairway. It is usually around 13-30 hrs after dinner. I either go to the plot or home. Look forward to that one day.  ThU32:-)

 :-)= Thank you for your kind offer but actually I am a coffee man cappuccino my favourite drink at home. I do drink tea but in the form of Kombucha after it has brewed for a week Gwilym also consumes a lot of it like me it is a health drink made with tea and sugar and then a liken is added to convert it into kombucha.  RedFaced:-( there is an article on here telling you all about it look on main index.

I used to brew it and drink it back a while ago but my kitchen is TINY and wasn't feeling any etter for it, so I gave a friend who was really unwell my kit, my dad will probably kill me cos I got it for christmas  one year from him and my mum, but I felt with my lack of space and her need for it was greater than the benefits I seemed to be receiving.... as it is Im a proper cronky old bugger mself now and could probably do with making it again, I qute liked the taste of it especially when I drank it with tonic water. eeesh, the mistakes we make. And I have cappucino mix but it's sweetened, but I can manage coffee so alls good :) xx
